  1. I know nothing about your latch other than it's beautiful and I like old iron. I tried to find out about the brass finial. It does seem to be for looks. I found this one and it looks to me like the le...
  2. Very cool item! Do you know what the brass knob is for?
  3. L.O. Beard Tool Company. Lancaster Pennsylvania. Cylinder head valve cutters. A few of these and other tools they made on eBay.
  4. I like the spring compressor idea. Maybe there are some spring operated dock plates there? Any equipment with a compression spring with a long threaded rod thru the middle?
  5. Hey Burt! Very interesting pliers. Do they lock when opened? Release when the handles are sgueezed? Any numbers or letters on the other side? I enjoy the thrill of the hunt but need some help!
  6. I also have wood lathes and metal lathes and have not seen a rest like this. Protective edge seems possible. I am wondering maybe a reversable tooth for a earth moving bucket? Can't find an example ...
  7. How big is your mystery?
  8. I like the tp holder idea. Perhaps when it got bent it got bent towards the wall too? That said it would also work as UncleRon suggests....So I really didn't help did I?
  9. Not saying anyone is wrong because I don't know what it is. I saw one on another site that called it a tack remover also. It just seems a clumsy tool for tacks when a simpler prying tool would do. The...
  10. I think you are right on Filln! I should have guessed it because the pin spacing is similar to the ones on a hydraulic hose cutter. I would suggest it would cut o-ring stock square also.
  11. Cool! But what is it?
  12. I will try again
  13. Slackjack is correct. Here is one nice and clean...
  14. How big is it? What do the ends look like?
  15. Thanks hedgewalker! Didn't know what a Spud was or the Spud wrench. Watched a video on YouTube. Now I do!
  16. I think a very nice collection of memories! Thanks for sharing
  17. My grandfather was an upholsterer so I recognized this right away. Thanks for posting.
  18. I used to be a millwright and worked with wire rope a bit. This seems a little delicate for that. I think just a big needle for when you need one.
  19. I had to look again and now I see the hinges! I think you are right about being a press. Maybe a hamburger or tortilla press. Fruit would explode everywhere!
  20. Also what kind of metal?
  21. It does look like a hammer! But I think not. With all those threads and a hex shaped handle I think some sort if adjusting mechanism. How big is it?
  22. My guess is part of a heavy duty door closer.
  23. Looks like the picture was right but description wrong in above link. This maybe better...
  24. Looks like you are right on bb2!
  25. Interesting item,Edgags. Been looking in my spare time. Lots of Billings wrenches on line. The rest if it I don't know. Is the needle shaped item have a hole through it? Does the extension rod? If so ...
  26. WAG #- If it is hollow maybe a gas light fixture. WAG#2-gas stove burner. Good luck
  27. Cool item! I hadn't seen tire chains like these before. I always learn something on this site. Thanks for posting
  28. Tire chains?
  29. Does it move? What does the knob do? Any numbers or letters? Curious item!
  30. Does it move? What does the knob do? Any numbers or letters? Curious item!
  31. Your welcome!
  32. I think you have the hold down for a drill press mortising attachment. The partial name tag looks familiar but I haven't found it yet. Very similar to this Craftsman.
  33. Thank you!
  34. Hold down clamp.
  35. Wow! Great item and solve Buckethead.
  36. Looks like some letters on handle. Perhaps PAT. Any numbers?
  37. It looks like there are tags but I can't read them. I would have guessed Delta or Rockwell. Beautiful old iron!
  38. I think you have a solve, showmetools!
  39. What do the knobs do?
  40. How big is it? Does the hole go all the way thru? Is it dome shaped or straight? Brass and bronze can be very similar as there are many possible alloys. Generally brass is more red, bronze is more yel...
  41. Absolutely! Collinsville, Il. I have been to the horseradish festival! Love it. I get most of my roots frin there...
  42. Welcome to CW, deestuff. Beautiful item! I will ask the obvious. Any numbers or letters? Good luck
  43. Is Starrett stamped on it anywhere? Thanks for posting.
  44. Is Starrett stamped on it anywhere? Thanks for posting.
  45. The picture looks as if the scribe is underneath the small knob. That is not where it should be. The machinist would get the point close and then fine adjust the tip with the small knob. The spring al...
  46. Really cool item! Now I know why you wonder if it could be a toy. Could be something for a train set. Good luck.
  47. Dimensions might help. How about a picture of the markings?
  48. I don't unferstand. Where is the chamber?
  49. What is the round item? The piece with the name on it looks like a part of a cork screw. I looked at alot of them by this company and while close could not find an exact match. The seem to be collecta...
  50. Yes, very helpful as always fhrjr2! Was just reading about that in a Diston handbook online. Good reading and thanks for the lesson
